More Audio issues...

Along with the sounds / tones truncating / cutting off, I was listening to some mp3's today and the sound was constantly cutting in and out of stereo mode.  Left ear worked most of the time, right ear worked maybe 1/4th of the time.  Whatever happened to the sound coding in the latest update, it needs to be fixed.
Post relates to: Pre p100eww (Sprint)

I have searched in vain for an answer to this
problem. I have a 15" Powerbook Aluminum, 1.5 Ghz G4
w/ 1.25G RAM and 10 GB available on the harddrive.
I am working with iMovie 6 with all my movie files on
a LaCie external drive connected using a FW800
connection. 195GB capacity, with about 20GB being
used up with iMovie files.
Here's my issue. When I import video alone into a
project, we have joy. When I try to add audio clips
(either AIFF or MP3), the playback slows to a crawl,
the video is severely stuttery and the audio is
distorted and plays at about half speed (like playing
a 33rpm LP at 16rpm).
If I delete the video and import the audio clips,
same issue w/slowness and distortion.
If I import the audioc clips singly, they play and
sync well with the video to a point, but there's a
threshhold at which the playback begins to degrade
and the audio issues return.
Very frustrating. Who can point me to some likely
culprits? Of, and this began happening in iMovie 5. I
was hoping iMovie 6 would solve. no joy.
Thanks all - Joel
OK - here's an update. I dumped my caches, fixed permissions, made changes to QT settings and reset the MIDI settings and the result? The audio is now running fine BUT the video is now not running (or at least ex-treme-ly sl-ooooooow-ly).
Any thoughts folks? I'd be eager to hear your input!

  • Bootcamp 3.1 and imac windows 7 64bit update not installing. Audio issues!

    After many days of work getting the windows 7 working in bootcamp in my imac 27 (still with audio issues) I eagerly awaited the bootcamp update and imac updates.
    Neither will install.
    Then I find that according to tech support as of now I have to reinstall Windows 7 again for the updates to work!
    It took me 5 full 8 hours days to get all my scientific programs installed and working, now I find I can't even simply update the drivers I need. I don't want to reinstall.
    My only issues are audio.
    Here they are:
    1) The headset jack works fine on the Mac side, but in Windows 7, it causes the i7 intel CPU to go crazy. There is no CPU spike on the mac side.
    2) The headset jack in the imac is a trrs jack. The same as in the iphone, a tri-band jack that has three bands, two audio out channels and one mic in channel. A trrs headset works fine on the mac side with using the headset mic (as in iphone) rather than the built in mic. (this provides much better quality for sound recording). I don't want to use a usb mike.
    In Windows 7 the mic part of the trrs headset does not work.
    3) In Windows 7 when going into audio devices recording, no audio mixer shows up, so when I do video or audio screen capture the only way to capture the sound is through the speakers and then back through the imac built in mic, rather than directly through the unit. (terrible sound quality) On the mac side the mixer element works fine.
    Now I find from other imac users that even the new updates for the imac on windows 7 don't address and fix the audio issues. I am sure not going to go through 5 more days work only to find the audio issues still don't work.
    I need these audio aspects to work properly though!
    I have tried to get drivers for the cirrus logic audio card, but guess what there are none available and cirrus logic doesn't even recognize the board or offer drivers.
    I have many windows programs I must have for my scientific research!I bought the top of the line Imac with all the bells and whistles because Apple promised that the machine could run Windows 7 in bootcamp natively!
    It doesn't. This has been a nightmare of problems.
    Is Apple going to step up to the plate and make good on their promises?
    Does any one have a fix for any of the audio issues, or know how to install the new drivers without a complete reinstall of Windows?
    Installing a few sound drivers and software should not require a complete reinstall. Getting the proper drivers for the headset jack audio in and audio out jack should be the most basic of fixes. Making the audio mixer work should be elementary.
    If you are an Apple tech person or an Apple user that can help on these issues, please do!
    Thanks, Dr. Duke
    An American profesor in Europe.
    PS I will post this under Imac windows 7 updates without a reinstall and under
    imac Sound issues.

    On another thread a few people have responded saying that their imac has the same situation, the cpu is going crazy and the imac gets hot with headphones or speakers plugged in. But this doesn't happen in the mac side.
    If you have an late 2009 imac and don't have these audio issues, let us hear from you. If you don't, lay out the problem here.
    Here is my last two cents in to the inquiry.
    Not only does the cpu run crazy but the imac 27 gets very, very hot. Since I unplugged the headphones, it runs much, much cooler.
    Certainly, some Mac engineers should take care of this problem, it seems it is universal on all the imac 27's and from what I gather, the smaller screened cousins too.
    Also, we certainly want a stereo mix option for audio in or out, or what is called "what you hear" or wave out. Imac is supposed to be much geared to multimedia apps.
    Finally, the mic jack part of the trrs set up MUST be fixed! A lot of manufacturers are going to headset combo jacks as they call them, mic in and stereo out on the same tribanded plug. But, the old single jack for mic in and single jack for stereo out are two tiny parts of the hardware and super inexpensive for the manufacturer. Why in the **** to go to the "advanced" triplug if the **** thing doesn't work.
    Mac has a great reputation. I hope they remedy these problems right away.
    Anyone whose imac 27 or 24 whose headset plug is working correctly. Let us know! I don't think anyone's is, but I think that few people understand that their cpu is running so much faster with the plug in, plus few even understand the combo jack and the triband, or trrs audio jack! Out of 4 audio technicians I talked to, not one of them knew what a trrs jack was or that you even have a mic in jack as part of the headset jack!
    When I told one senior that it worked on the Mac side, he didn't believe for a while, thought my sound might be recorded from the onboard mic, but I proved it to him by tapping iaudibly on my iphone mic headset and and it showing up in garage band clearly and listening to big difference in audio.
    As for a usb audio adapter, I am in a neon light environment and find that those adapters are more sensitive to electrical interference. Besides I want to use the headset jack as it was meant to be used!
    Thats it.
    Again, if anyone using an imac 27 and windows 7 64 or 32 doesnt have these problems, let us know! We are all anxious for a fix!
    Best to all!

  • XDCAM audio issues in Premiere Pro CC

    We run 4 New Mac Pro Towers at my shop with Adobe Creative Cloud, and we're editing on Premiere Pro CC. We were a Final Cut 7 shop until we were forced to choose between PP or FCX. I've recently been experiencing audio issues when ingesting XDCAM footage from my Sony EX3 Camera. While the video looks great when ingested into either XDCAM Browser, or when I drop the BPAV file into our external drive and bring it into PPCC, the audio becomes noisy and unusable.; while this same audio sounds excellent on all my other machines. I've uninstalled both the XDCAM Browser and Premiere software and reinstalled them, but have not had any luck so far. Meantime, none of my other machines are experiencing this issue. Any assistance would be much appreciated.
    Thanks.

    One way, assuming you are working in mono, pan A1 center and A2 right, this will give ambience to left and ambience and narration to right. If you are mixing and you don't want the ambience only track to change in level you will need to use subgroups but this will get more involved.

  • Vista 64, Latest Driver & X-Fi Elite Pro: Audio issue with Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 (Pes 20

    Hi,i have formatted XP S.P.2 and now i'm using Vista Ultimate 64.I have got an X-Fi Elite Pro and i have installed all the applications using the CD-Rom.I updated the driver, Alchemy and Mediasource to the latest version.The system is totally clean and updated (I used Windows Update when i finished to install Vista and nothing was installed). I would like to know why i cannot play Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 like in XP: when i enter in the game i have a noise (looks like the noise of the needle in old gramophones...) and i cannot use the speakers (Creative ProGamer G500).If i turn the volume to 0 i can hear it too... i have to switch off the speakers or exit the game to delete it.Is it another bug I tried to uninstall and doing a new installation of the game but... no way men... Thanks p.s.After year and 4 months (release date of Vista) is it possible to have a decent driver... The Audio Quality in Vista Ultimate 64 bit is lower than in XP and the same wave files have distortion with the low and middle-high volume (60-70).
    Problems that i have never had in XP... i cannot reinstall XP another time. I bought Vista in 2006 and i cannot use it till you'll release a good sw.
    Have we to wait till 200 for a fuc.ing working driver

    The problem is now official: other customers have problems with some games (Pes 2008 and Crysis in particular). I'll show u the main italian hw. forum. There is a thread of more than 500 pages just about Creative X-Fi: http://www.hwupgrade.it/forum/showth...42043&page=550 I would like to know if u test drivers before sharing... because i don't know what you did in more than year.You should meditate, people... I paid more than 400 $ for an Elite Pro and after year and 4 month i cannot install Vista 64 too for audio issues with mp3-wave files and Pes 2008 or Vista 32 bit for problems with Pes 2008. This is my latest Creative product, you can trust.

  • Ios 7.0.4 audio issue

    I updated my iPad 2 to iOS 7.0.4 that was released today. Now I have horrible audio issues. As I type there is this weird sound, like a "wisp" sound or something. When I lock my screen it's a loud buzz sound extremely annoying. The worst part is when I play videos, like I always do on my iPad, it just sounds really bad, very distorted. I just got a notification as I am typing this and it made the normal bing sound, but then a "wisp" sound at the end. This thing is basically useless if I want audio, who knows what else is messed up now. It's bad enough iOS 7 has been buggy, but this new version makes my iPad 2 basically unusable.
    Also I don't sync this with a computer, it's meant to be my iTunes, amazon and podcast standalone tablet, like Apple allows me to do, so no backup, never thought I would have to backup an OS because Apple didn't test. Not to sound bitter or anything, but I expect more from Apple, can't use this thing for entertainment until they fix this.

    Try reset all settings

  • Premiere Pro CS6 Audio Issues

    We have been testing Premiere CS6 on our first job for the last week. However, we are running into some major audio issues:
    1. When clip is loaded into the source viewer, and you jump to through the cilp, the audio lags behind until you stop and wait a few seconds for the audio to catch up. This is a major hinderance when trying to edit quickly with clients in session. This also happens on the timeline when jumping around. These problems never occured in Avid or FCP running the same media.
    2. With no rhyme or reason, the audio (from source and timeline) sometimes just doesnt play. The meteres will be moving and the video will play, but the audio wont be coming out. Sometimes you hear a noise as if someone was playing with the audio cables. Also, sometimes the meters dont even move, to suggest there is no audio again video is playing, when infact there is.
    These problems have occured accros multiple machines, with media running from both our server, and local hard drives. Our facility runs a NAS that pushes 110/MB/s over ethernet from a 16TB RAID6 (that is SAS connected to the server). One machine is running OSX 10.8, with Black Magic Intensity Pro, 20GB Ram, NVidia Quadro 4000. Another is running OSX 10.8, with AJA IO Express, 16GB Ram, NVidia 4000. and the last is running 10.6.8 with Black Magic Intesnsity Pro, 12GB ram, and NVidia GTX something or other (unsupported card).
    Has anyone else gotten these issues? Like i said, i have tested the media from the server and from the local hard drives. We are pushing Apple Pro Res HQ, have also tested Pro Res LT, Pro Res 444 and Canon H.264.

    For me it wasn't a RAM issue, I had more than enough to process the audio I had in my project.  This quote from a Creative Cow post worked for me.
    "Try deleting your .cfa files for the media in question, and then don't mess with the project until they are done re-conforming."
    Here's the original post:
    http://forums.creativecow.net/thread/3/926011
    I don't know how to figure out which .cfa files are associated to specific media files, so I just went to where they were cached and deleted all of them.  Open your project again and you'll see a little yellow bar in the lower left-hand corner of the Timeline window showing  that it's re-conforming your media.  Don't even think of touching the computer while it's doing this... I was so paranoid that I didn't do anything else (check e-mail, open a web browser, work on a Word doc, etc.) until Premiere was totally finished.  After that my audio played fine for the rest of the project.
    One thing that's tricky and took me a while to figure out is that if you're using multiple drives, you have to be careful to make sure you're getting ALL of the .cfa files.  If you've set the project to cache your files on a external drive, and then open a  project on a different drive without having that external connected, Premiere will set the cache folder to its default location (usually on your host computer's main hard drive).  I didn't realize this, and had the audio drop-out issue, so I deleted the .cfa files but the drop-out didn't go away.  I found out that Premiere had reset my media cache folder, and had cached the corrupted .cfa files on my main hard drive.  Once I deleted them there and let the computer re-conform, the  audio played well again.
    Hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions.

  • Bad Audio Issue on first gen MB

    Hello everybody!
    I have a first gen MB, 2.0ghz, 2 gb ram, custom 160gb Hitachi HDD, 2,5 years of life. Leopard 10.5.3.
    Audio issues:
    - sometimes (more often when I have USB devices attached) audio is not recognised at boot. No audio icon in menu bar, no output, nothing in preference pane. Restart solves the problem
    - Always when Isight is on (i.e.green light on) Audio crackles and skips horrible (i.e. I can't use skype with isight, or photobooth with itunes).
    - Audio skips and crackles often when I am just listening to something (itunes) and doing something else (live web browsing, nothing very cpu or hdd consuming).
    It happens whatever software I am using to play audio files (even video files with VLC). It seems a very generalised issue. It started around when I updated to 10.5.2, no sign of getting better today with 10.5.3 (should solve something related to usb and audio).
    Any hint, help possibilities? (I have tryed to: repair permissions, repair disk, run every single onyx optimisation, defrag, reset SMC, reset NVRAM) nothing works.
    Any help would be much much appreciated, thank you very much.

    Stop using Onyx. Don't defrag your hard drive. Both steps are unnecessary and can cause more damage than help. You may be able to solve your audio problems with this article:

  • Premiere Elements 9 audio issue

    Hi, i have an audio issue with Premiere Elements 9.
    I just purchased a Dazzle DVC 100. I've captured Video/Audio through Pinnacle Studio no problems.
    But when I try to capture in PE9 I only get Video. I have changed every setting i could find under the
    audio preferences menus, tried every combination i could but still no audio. Am i missing something?
    Thanks for any help forwarded!
    These are the settings i tried.
    edit - project settings - playback settings - I've clicked both Desktop Audio/External Device Audio
    edit - preference - audio hardware - Default Device - Premiere Elements WDM Sound
                                                                               ASIO Settings - Input - Realtek Digital Input (selected)
                                                                                                      - Output - Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio) (selected)
                                                                                                                    - Realtek Digital Output (Realtek High Definition Audio) (selected)
    Tried the Default Device: Asio4All v2 setting
    This comes up with 2 options Realtek High Def Audio and Dazzle DVC100 Audio Device
    I have selected both these still no audio.
    I'm stumped.

    Unfortunately the Dazzle is one of those low-end capture units that are pretty much made to work with the video editor that comes with them. Even converting the video won't make it more compatible with Premiere Elements.
    As I explain in my books as well as in the FAQs to the right of this forum, the best devices for capturing video for editing your PC are called DV bridges. The best value is the ADS Pyro AV Link, available for about $100 online.

    The video it captures load right into Premiere Elements and edit beautifully!

  • Outgoing call audio issue

    I bought an iPhone 4s in India two days back. I am facing a strange problem when I make audio calls. Very often (not all the time) I do not hear any audio after making an outgoing call though the call go thru' and timer starts clicking. When I checked with the people whom I called, they said that they got the call but did not hear anything at their end. The workaround that I figured out is to press SPEAKER button twice (activate and deactivate) when I encouter this problem. It seems to be working as of now. Not sure if this is a hardware problem or a software problem or if I am missing anything with settings. Can someone help me?
    Thanks !!!

    Hi raj1434,
    Thanks for visiting Apple Support Communities.
    If you are not hearing callers, or being heard on calls, use these steps to guide your troubleshooting:
    iPhone: Microphone issues
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ts5183
    Make sure nothing is plugged in to the jack connector.
    Make sure nothing is blocking any of the microphones (see the pictures below to locate the microphones on your device)
    Make sure none of the microphones is obstructed by dirt or debris.
    Turn the iPhone off and then on.
    Make sure that the latest version of iOS is installed.
    iPhone: Receiver and call audio quality issues
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ts5196
    Increase the volume during the call.
    Make sure nothing is blocking the receiver. If you're using a protective case or display film, remove it and try again.
    Make sure nothing is plugged into the headphone jack or the dock connector.
    Check the receiver opening to see if it is clogged with debris. If necessary, clean it with a clean, small, dry, soft-bristled brush.
    Try another location with better signal. If the audio issue happens only when on a call, it could be due to the location.
    If the iPhone is paired with a Bluetooth headset or a car kit, try turning off Bluetooth on your device. Learn more about troubleshooting Bluetooth connections.
    If none of the steps above correct the behavior, back up your iPhone and restore the iOS software to factory settings:

  • Toshiba Satellite A665-S6055 audio issues.

    A few hours ago I noticed my volume controls seemed to have a mind of their own.  The volume bar would go all the way down to zero, and noticed the system control panel volume buttons (above the keyboard, not the same model but you get the idea) would light up on their own.  Volume Up, Down, and Mute were lighting up and messing with the volume.  It was as if someone was pressing them.  Thinking it may be a virus of some sort, I ran Avast and Malwarebytes but both returned nothing.
    I then thought the system control buttons were bugging out, and decided to uninstall the TOSHIBA Value Added Package, which I thought would remove the functionality of said buttons.  However upon restart the problem has only gotten worse.  Now the Play/Pause button is lighting up randomly.  According to the control panel the Value Added Package was indeed removed, and I have not reintalled the latest version of it yet.
    Any suggestions?  My sound is essentially ruined.
    edit: I tried restoring the system to a few days ago but it didn't help.  After the restart yet ANOTHER button from the system control panel has started randomly lighting up.  I'm starting to think this isn't an audio issue, but an issue with the system control panel buttons.  I will reinstall the TVAP using this download and update this post with the results.
    edit: Reinstalling TVAP did not solve the issue.  The issue has actually escalated quite dramatically.  Even more buttons are being accessed now, including the wi-fi button.  I'm literally unable to access this website on my laptop because the wi-fi function keeps getting turned on and off.  I fear a factory reset is my only hope.
    edit: The issue goes away in Safe Mode.  Still doesn't really fix anything though.
    edit: Possibly fixed.  Unplugged power cord, forced shut down, removed battery and waited about a minute.  Plugged the cord back in as well as the battery.  Started it up, went to BIOS settings and reset it to the defaults (F9).  Saved the setting and continued the reboot process.  The issue appears to be gone.  I tested the volume buttons and they are working properly.
    HELP.

  • SoftPhone over VPN audio issue

    Having a "one-way" audio issue when IPC connects over VPN to any Main Office IP Phones (7960). Remote IPC (softphone) shows "0 Received" Packets, but the IP Phone shows them as being sent.
    This does NOT happen if IPC contacts another IPC on a PC at Main Site, or any kind of phone at the other branch offices.
    Have looked at all of the audio settings on the VPN IPC unit, they are correct.
    Any ideas?

    Try to sniff the Ethernet traffic during call setup at the CallManager. When Callmanager sends Call Control messages to remote party, it could send wrong IP address or UDP port as an RTP parameters.
    Another components could block the traffic are firewalls. How do you have your VPN tunnel built? Do you use Cisco VPN Client? What terminates your VPN traffic at the central location? PIX, VPN3000 or Router? Traffic may go one way without a change, and some protocol FixUp may be triggered for this traffic on the way back. If you have access to firewall logs, check if you have any traffic dropped.
    Good luck,

  • Logic 9.1.8 & Mainstage 2 - crashing frequently/audio issues

    I have just uprgraded to this set up (though using the same sound card as I did on my Mac Book with Logic 8 & Snow Leopard prevously) - in order to avoid overloading which was happening on my previousl set up.. only to find that this new system seems very buggy - crashes frequently on Logic  (Sudden Motion Sensor error - have disabled that now) and Main Stage freezes. Then a wierd echoey sound can happen - whereby any audio is echoed back from DAW, in Logic AND Mainstage.
    I have down loaded two plug-ins/VST's since starting to use this new set up - an XILS Lab L.E. verision and a Crystal synth. I've downloaded the up to date Duet drivers from Apogee. (I have an Duet 1.5 that I used with my old set).
    Have looked at the Console system log to try and understand what might be happening - it is FULL of text on occasions when Logic crashes  - I am not tech savvy enough to unpick it though.
    If anyone has any suggestions to help I would be grateful, thanks.
    I do wonder if it is a Core audio issue though - given the echoiing that seems to occur...

    As you may have noted from the list of Apple devices I own, I believed in the Apple and the products it was producing; but it is hard to believe from my experience and the other voices within the Apple Community that we are all experiencing the same hardware issues. Especially since I recently, I upgraded to an IPhone 4g (no, my faith in IPhone 5 series is very little) and is experiencing the same audio problem as described above. So now, I am off to the Apple store again to be told that it’s a hardware problem on new IPhone. Really? Apple, what happen to the pride in the product you were producing?

    Everyone does things a little differently. I love to "jam " along with iTunes ( or old Lp's) . Always have. That's where/how I've learned to play .
    I'm sure leonieDF is giving a proper way to jam along on a keyboard with an iTune. He blows my mind all the time with what he knows. Nuff respects to him !
    What I do is make a GB project I call "Jam With". I'll make several new tracks that are blank. Just has a few instruments named in the blank tracks. You can change those per song ...
    Because I'm not concerned about changing the pitch / key.... of the iTune or the tempo ... I can simply play along with it.
    Peace,

  • IMovie audio issues. Fine in timeline, but when rendering to iTunes or Media Browser, audio from certain portions of movie files are heard in places where it shouldn't be !

    iMovie 11  audio issues. Fine in timeline, but when rendering to iTunes or Media Browser, audio from certain portions of movie files are heard in places where it shouldn't be !
    I have created a project where I have a montage of photos and video clips edited together with music under. Some audio portions of the video files are being muted in some areas and those portions are being heard in another part of the project. This is not for all video clips only certain ones.
    The project plays fine in the timeline, but when I render the project thru iTunes or Media Browser, this is when the project goes corrupt.
    I tried detaching the Audio from the video clips and this somewhat worked, but the original problem still exists with certain audio still being heard where it's not supposed to be.

    I have a fix - or rather, a workaround.
    WARNING: It is lengthy, but still far better than starting a new project from scratch.
    I had this same issue and none of my transitions/clips were at custom speeds, nor did I have anything else weird going on. Unfortunately there is nothing you can do within iMovie to fix this, at least there wasn't for me. iMovie is BY FAR the buggiest software I have ever used and if you haven't already spent hours slaving away on a project, you are so much better off using just about anything else to edit your video.
    ...But let's assume you have already spent many hours working on your project and you don't want to start all over. Well then, you have at least one option.
    It's a pain in the neck, but it's infinitely better than restarting your project from scratch.
    This will require:
    A software called Soundflower (which is free) and some kind of audio editing software (I use Logic, but really any should work).
    1.) You're going to need to export your video with the messed up audio. Typically if you're audio is messing up, you're video is at least usually working just fine (at least it always does for me).
    2.) You're going to need to open that video in your audio software and import only the audio. If your software doesn't give you this option, then you're going to need to record the audio from your video using the audio software and Soundflower. You can find tutorials on how to do this, but it's honestly pretty straightforward once you start playing around with you Mac's audio I/O settings. Remember to have your computer's volume all the way up when doing this.
    3.) Watch/listen to your video and make notes of where the audio errors occur. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND writing down times too,  as they will be extremely helpful later.
    4.) Now were going to rip some working audio from the iMovie project itself. Go back into your iMovie project and only play back audio while in the edit window for this step. Do NOT play your project back in full screen.
    This part is key: if you try to play back your project from the beginning the audio will usually still mess up. So, what you're gonna have to do is go back on your edit window timeline right before these errors occur and play that specific clip back while recording this working audio with Soundflower and your audio software. Essentially we're only recording the parts of the audio where these errors occur, so try to do this in order if you can. Try to leave several seconds of audio in before the error - that way we can use it as reference when we construct our new audio track.
    5.) Now in your audio software you should have your original error-filled audio track and the new clips that we just captured. This part can be painstaking if you're not familiar with audio editing softwares, but as you'll learn, it's really not that hard.
    You're going to look at your original audio track and compare it to your new working audio clips. You should be able to notice where those new clips are supposed to go by looking at the identical (or close to identical) waveform shapes in your original audio track. The two should correspond with one another. If you don't understand what I mean right now, you will when you start playing around with the audio. This is why marking times is very important.
    Take your new clips and split them up if you haven't already, that way you can drag them around and edit them separately from one another. Essentially your going to line these new clips up with original and then replace the original parts with new ones.
    We need to get this as precise as possible, so start off by getting them as close as you can with your naked eye, and then use a zoom tool to zoom in as much as possible so that you can get them lined up PERFECTLY, or at least extremely close. In some softwares you can just drag these new clips on top of the old track, but most of the time you will need to actually cut out the old piece and replace it with the new one. In doing this, zoom in and make sure that you are NOT cutting out a bigger space than your new clip will fill - otherwise you will have small gaps in your audio.
    VERY IMPORTANT: Also make sure that this new audio track starts at the EXACT SAME time as your original - otherwise your new audio will be out of sync.
    I know this part can really suck if you're not used to audio editing, but at this point, there is little other choice.
    6.) Once you are done with this, export your newly pieced together audio track.
    7.) Now open iMovie and create a NEW project. Re-import the video that you exported earlier that has the messed up audio. This might take a while, so just be patient.
    8.) Then right click the clip and select "Detach Audio". This will do just that - allowing you to edit the audio separately from the video. Now delete this audio.
    9.) Now, import the new, perfect audio track that we just made and make sure that it starts at the start of the project. Make sure it's in sync and that everything works.
    Now just export your new video with the working audio and you should be done. Since we have given iMovie the audio with no editing actually being done in iMovie, it does not have to generate its own audio now and you should have absolutely no errors now - unless there is some that you forgot to take out earlier.
    YOU'RE FINALLY DONE!!!
    I know this entire process *****, but if you're that far into your project, there is little else that you can do. Now you've learned your lesson:
    DON'T USE IMOVIE EVER AGAIN.
    I hope this helped!
